Combining interior, urban and country landscapes, ‘Treasured Places’ showcases the colourful world that artists live in and are inspired to paint. Nick Olsen, Tim Graham and Ken Strong take us on a journey through time and place, with their interpretation of life around them. ‘Treasured Places’ opens on Friday 7 April 2017 at Red Hill Gallery in Musgrave Road and is sure to attract art lovers to view the much loved icon scenes of Brisbane and surrounds.
Brisbane artist, Nick Olsen’s colourful and evocative landscapes relate to an expression of a sense of place. He likes to focus on images of the simple things in life, hoping these subjects allow the viewer to relate to their own experiences. He believes this is an important aspect of enjoying art.
Tim Graham started painting at an early age and currently resides on the Sunshine Coast. He paints in an impressionist style where his main emphasis is colour. “I look out the studio window into the garden and trees and everything is full of sunlight and the brightest of colours, it all looks so happy and full of life’’.
From the beautiful surrounds of Northern NSW, artist Ken Strong says “The more I paint, the more I am absorbed with the concept of composition. It is everything. To determine the perfect harmony is to be able to recreate the sensation of a subject, this may impact the emotions or just stimulate the pleasure of observation.”
“Treasured Places’ combines the artwork of three exceptional and distinct artists. Visitors to Red Hill Gallery can immerse themselves in this visual journey through urban, country and interior and enjoy the colourful wonderment that has been created.” Margaret Campbell-Ryder, Gallery Director and Curator
